BLA Officers
President : Susan Rehder
Vice President: Susan Macksey
Treasurer: Susan Rehder
Secretary: Susan Macksey



The Burden Lake Association (BLA) is dedicated to the preservation and sustainability of our historic lake. BLA members are committed to being proactive and environmentally conscience in addition to creating community.

We are active participants in clearing our lake of non-native and invasive vegetation, always mindful of the environmental impact of our methods. Our commitment to community is strong. We organize and participate in several social activities and humanitarian causes for the entertainment and betterment of our lake community.


Election of Officers for 2015 will be at the August meeting. This past year of only two officers has been tough. Susan M. will not be running for re-election as Secretary. Susan S. is willing to stay on as Treasurer or even Treasurer/Secretary if necessary. But this association needs more officers. Frank Lewandusky from Gundrum Point Road has offered to run as President and is currently looking for other interested people.
